Directions:

Be prepared. Read the script ahead of time. If you plan to use the roll call method, obtain the most recent list from an SCRA officer.

Look up next weeks’ net controller and write it down.

Small letters in (bold italics in parenthesis) = instructions to you, the net controller, and should NOT be read on the air.

Important: Remember to identify your station every ten (10) minutes.

Un-key after each paragraph to prevent timing out the repeater and allow for emergency break-ins.
